High quality foreign language education for free, while helping a great project
--quote--
Luis von Ahn, the man who brought the world CAPTCHA and reCAPTCHA unveiled his newest and most innovative project to date: Duolingo. How can you translate the entire internet and do it for free? Duolingo will be a revolutionary product in which millions of internet users from around the world will work together to translate the internet and learn a new language at the same time. All for free.

This sounds like a really exciting idea, and a novel approach to bringing "expensive" education to everyone, for free.
